let's hear it from the board...which would you choose and why? i'm very close to making up my mind and would really appreciate your feedback. btw, which ever one i end up getting is going to be my primary concealed carry weapon. thanks in advance for the feedback and advice!

I'm a big fan of the HK's, but I would go with the Kimber. Especially against the USP 9c... if it were the USP.45c, I might be swayed one way or the other, but with the choices you've given, it's the Kimber all the way.

Probably it's just my own wants: I already have a USP .40c, and I really want a fullsize 1911.

I'm going with Gunbert on this one.

I have 3 USP's and one Kimber.

Go with the .45 its a much better round [flame suit on]

I love the look of the Eclipse, I'm getting one myself.

Feel like I am being unfaithful to my USP, but I agree with the Kimber.

If you don't love accuracy & reliability, then don't get the H&K.

I've yet to see a factory stock gun outshoot my USPs. Not once.

Kimber now uses cast parts, as I understand it.

USP in .45

As long as we're limited to 10 rnd mags there is absolutely zero reason to go with 9mm unless you are going to an ultra compact, but even then they usually make the same gun in .40. case in point is the Glock 26 and 27 which are both the same size. Why in the world would you buy the G26? You get 1 more round and go down to 9mm in the trade. (Yes, I understand that some people get the 26 to complement the G17 or 19 that they use as a primary weapon and the 26 takes the same mags.) If this is your only pistol go with the .45 Kimber. I have a USP in .40 that I love and a kimber that I love as well. We're only talking 2 rnds difference. What you will find is that pistols are even more addictive than ARs! I think I have around 20 or so now. Just this week I picked up a Sig 2340 and a Walther P99 in .40 that were both just too good of deals to pass up.

Wow... you must be amazed that anyone uses anything other than HK.

Actually, yes. Unless cost is a concern, why would anyone?
